Here are options with selection checkboxes or input fields that you will find in the Admin Tools Options section:
Show Booster Menus Only to Admin #
By default, all the users who can access your WooCommerce dashboard have access to Booster menus. However, if you want to make Booster menus visible and accessible to the Booster admin only, select Enable for the “Show Booster Menus Only to Admin” option.
Suppress Admin Connect Notice #
Annoyed with the recurring “Connect your store to WooCommerce.com to receive extensions updates and support.” notification in your WooCommerce store? Well, it is easy to get rid of it.
You can Enable the “Suppress Admin Connect Notice” option to hide this notification from your store forever.

If you want to remove the “connect” notice (previous option in this section) as well as all other admin notices/notifications from your WooCommerce dashboard, select Enable for the “Suppress Admin Notices” option.
Enable Interface By User Roles #

Select Enable as the value “Show Order Meta” option. It will add a meta-box, displaying all meta-data related to the current order.
To view the changes made by this option in your WooCommerce store, go to WooCommerce > Orders page and click on any order name.

If using Booster, you will be able to see the values for the following metadata attributes in the order meta section.
Products Options #
The Product Options section lists down the options to manage the admin view of product data control. You can find the options to show meta in product (edit view) pages, product variants’ pricing table, product revisions, and JSON product search limit.

A booster product meta box will have a long list of product meta information, with dozens of attributes. With it, the store admin will be able to find any product-related information in no time.
Show Variable Product Pricing Table #
If you find it tough to manage the pricing of your variable products (e.g. their variants), it is better to enable the Show Variable Product Pricing Table setting. This option will simplify the process of handling variable product prices.
After enabling this option, visit any variable product in the edit mode.
You will see an additional meta box with its title as “Booster: Admin Tools”. It has all the variants, their regular price, and their sales price enlisted. You can edit and save the variable product pricing directly from this meta box now.
Product Revisions #
Select Enable for the Product Revisions option in the Product Options section. It will enable WooCommerce/WordPress for managing multiple versions of your products. So, whenever required, you will be able to switch back to the previous product version.
This option will add a “Revisions” field with a clickable link to Browse the existing versions and the count of versions it has maintained.
When you click on the Browse link, you will see a comparison page with the two latest versions. Also, you can use the horizontal slider to see other versions, available related to this product.
Click on the Restore this Revision button to use the currently-opened version, or just copy the information you want to add to the latest version from the previous ones (and later paste it on the product page).
To compare any two versions (instead of the newest ones), select the “Compare any two revisions” checkbox and use the two buttons on the slider to choose the versions for comparison.

JSON Product Search Limit #
This option sets the maximum count for the products to return from a JSON product search. For example, if you are adding a “related products” tab or “You might want to buy this” tab on your product page, the value of the JSON Product Search Limit option will be given the preference.
To make the shop frontend ignore this setting, set its value to 0 (Zero).
